Tenterden’s Neighbourhood Plan

Local Green Spaces can be protected where they are of particular importance to the local community under the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework, 2012, (‘ the NPPF’).To achieve Local Green Space Designation we have to produce clear, objective and robust evidence that the Local Green Spaces meet the tests set out in the NPPF.  We must also ensure that we conform with national and local planning policy and do not contradict the Ashford Local Plan.

To qualify for protection, a Local Green Space must be, ‘In reasonably close proximity to the community it serves; demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquility or richness of its wildlife; and local in character and is not an extensive tract of land’.

Working Groups

Working Groups have been set up to gather and collate the strong objective evidence needed to meet these tests.

There are four Working Groups. These are:
